Chlorophyllin: Antimutagenic agent against Environmental Toxins

The exposure to environmental toxins is experienced on a daily basis by everyone.  Some have greater exposure than others, but it is clear that all people are under the exposure of environmental toxins.  This exposure occurs from a barrage of compounds through:

  • industrial and manufacturing facilities
  • agricultural runoff
  • pesticides and herbicides laced in foods
  • emissions from trucks, cars, and planes

This exposure was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a published report entitled The Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals, 2009, (the Fourth Report, 2009).   This CDC report examined the burden of 212 industrial chemicals in the bodies of U.S. citizens.  1 

Environmental toxins are known to create mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene which then leads to pathways involved in cancer development. 

“Turning on” the p53 Tumor Suppressor Gene also inhibits the genetic mutations that “turn off” the p53 Tumor Suppressor Gene.   2 

Chlorophyllin can accomplish the “turning on” of the p53 tumor suppressor gene and thus protect against mutations of the gene by exhibiting powerful anticarcinogenic effects in regards to a variety of environmental toxins.  3  4

Chlorophyllin forms complexes with the environmental toxins and limits their ability to bind to the normal cell and thus disables the potent carcinogen.

Certain common environmental toxins are disabled by chlorophyllin:
